Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015
Hampstead NH has been invaded by Scarecrows! Yep you read that right…scarecrows invaded Hampstead! You may be aware that Chester NH has been doing a fundraiser for years that involve towns folks buying a starter kit, blank head and body frame, with proceeds to benefit the Historical Society. The Chester Scarecrow event has been popular for years and something that Jay and I have enjoyed seeing, taking pictures and videos of the scarecrows. This year I mused , after seeing some crows in Sandown and a few in Hampstead that maybe the Chester Scarecrow event would morph into some sort of tri-town event. Well I am not that far off. Within the last week or so Scarecrows have shown up all over Hampstead!
The Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015 started very low key with proceeds going to a local food pantry. My understanding is that quickly 100 heads, blank heads to be decorated, were sold ($10.00 each) with many more folks wanting to join in but no more heads to be had. Jay and I drove through town the other day and were able to take some pictures and videos of the Hampstead NH Scarecrows 2015.
Next year, I am sure, this will be a much larger event and that means folks can drive all around Hampstead, enjoy breakfast or lunch and then explore Chester and then have dinner at a local restaurant before returning home. Maybe Sandown will jump on the scarecrow wagon too and it will really end up being a month long tri town event next year.
